Electric Green School motorcycle shows its rebel nature by running Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Electric motorcycles are getting more and 
| more common, and while we don't think 
| they'll ever quite capture the rush of an 
| internal-combustion engine threatening to 
| fly into bits as it screams toward red-
| line, they are starting to offer their 
| own... unique charms. This model is a 
| Norwegian prototype, based on a Honda 
| chassis that had its tail chopped and motor 
| stripped, replaced by stacks of Nickel-
| Metal batteries, then wrapped in some 
| custom bodywork. The bike sports a 
| touchscreen dash powered by Ubuntu that 
| offers both stats about the bike (speed, 
| temperature, etc.) as well as GPS 
| navigation and, presumably, on the go games 
| of Tux Racer. It's a one-off built by Green 
| School Motorcycles and Akershus University 
| College, and there's plenty more 
| information about it in a video at the 
| source link below -- if you speak 
| Norwegian.
